Hidden gem in the hearth of Old Town Dubrovnik!Restaurant Marco Polo is hidden in the hearth of the Dubrovnik Old Town, in a traditional courtyard of street called Lučarica. Small family restaurant is placed in a private and calm ambient and it offers oasis of busy streets to taste fish, meat and vegetarian specialties of the house.Here is the place where you can taste both traditional recipes from our grandmothers like mussels and seashells in traditional red or white sauce called ‘’Buzzara’’, traditional Black risotto or some of our modern dishes like Tuna Steak Precious Blue in sesame crust.Sharing our food and culture with people all around the world is inspiration for us. We use ingredients like Adriatic tuna, octopus, homemade anchovies, Croatian cheese, Oysters from Ston, extra virgin olive oil from Island of Korčula and lot of herbs to present you taste of our cuisine and culture.Accompanied with excellent Croatian wine, beer and homemade liquors be sure you will experience our past and future on a plate.

Quiet, lovely and excellent Cuisine

This charming property offers wonderful dishes. The black risotto was unmistakably delicious as was the truffle infused pasta dish. The service was excellent, the pace relaxed and the overall experience sublime. One of Dubrovnik's best kept secrets.

Noticed this little restaurant in a courtyard in the Old Town and, as we had already eaten, decided to visit later. Took us several days to find again in the warren of streets! So glad we found it again. Set in it's own courtyard, it is removed from the hustle and bustle in the alleys around it. We were shown... More

This place seems to get a lot of very favourable reviews on this site but unfortunately I can't be quite as glowing as some of them. The setting is really lovely; a quiet, quaint little alley with tables and chairs finished with good lighting and a few plants. The service also was top notch, with a level of attentiveness you...

Lovely restaurant, excellent service by all waiters. Quality of food was excellent. Stayed in Dubrovnik for 5 nights eat here 3 out of 5. On third night they gave us free desert of our choice each. Prices in line with restaurants in Dubrovnik.

Food was decidedly average, which was disappointing given the great reviews on here. Nice atmosphere and good service but the meal was nowhere near the standard we expected. Shellfish was especially disappointing. As was house wine.

Definitely the best meal we have had in Dubrovnik. The quality of food is amazing and fresh. I ordered a spinach ravioli with a creamy sage sauce. I was expecting it to be boring but it was incredible. The staff were polite attentive and friendly and the atmosphere was great. We still have a couple more days here and are... More

We were so glad that we found this hidden gem in a narrow street in Dubrovnik! We tried the black risotto, the catch of the day, squid, tuna steak and the oysters. We would highly recommend the black risotto and their fish. Oysters were fresh and nice as well but they had limited supply (we couldn't have as many as... More

The main part of the restaurant is in an alley way with a beautiful ambience. Great service. The waiters actually know the wines, where they are grown, and recommended well. We had the Pork dishes which were very nice. With so many restaurants to choose from in Dubrovnik it's hard to find something a little different. Marco Polo fits the... More

After reading the many positive comments about this restaurant we thought we would give it a try. We were not disappointed. The restaurant was easy to find as just off the Main Street but in a lovely quaint setting as one would hope in the beautiful old town of dubrovnik. Good choice of menu and both food and service were... More
